My thoughts and prayers are with Jenny and Butch's family. Your mother was a sweetheart whenever I would visit Jenny up at her home. Jenny remember us trying to get your Mom's video game console hooked up? You saved the day after I think two hours of tinkering. Ms. Pat was always happy when she received visitors, especially with games. I'm so sorry for your heartache, and loss of such a wonderful woman. Heaven gained a special Angel . Love each of you.

I have only met with Aunt Pat a few times. She was alway very kind , welcoming and nice to be around. I am Sorry for the Family's loss and I am sure that She's dearly missed. Have faith that according to the Bible this separation from Patricia is only temporary and one day you will be reunited. " Peace be with you "

I will miss you for the rest of my days. You were a better mom than you gave yourself credit for. I will never be as forgiving as you. I will continue to do the right thing and do right by your memory.
